' I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful your students were in our recent ofsted inspection. They were an incredible support to their teacher mentors and the wider team. Each and every one is an absolute credit to the profession. They are calm, professional and caring and a delight to work with. Full of love for TEAM BITT!'

'I chose to train with Bransgore ITT because of its reputation and provision of varied content. Throughout the academic year, I have been supported by skilled and enthusiastic mentors both at Bransgore and at my placement school. It is clear that they hold a passion for outstanding teaching so I was always reassured and encouraged to reach my full potential. Over the year, I have grown in confidence, been immersed in varied experiences with teaching specialists and had the opportunity to embed the Teachers Standards within my own practice. The course has also provided a realistic insight into life as a teacher. From live teaching to remote teaching and then all the expectations and preparation done behind the scenes, we have been able to experience it all. This has fully prepared me for my ECT year and I couldn’t recommend this course or provider enough – I have enjoyed every moment of it!'

‘If you’re looking to enrol on this course I would 100% recommend it. The Bransgore team are so supportive and really set you up for success through their continuous support and well scaffolded course. I have thoroughly enjoyed my training year and cannot wait to continue my teaching journey in September! Thank you Bransgore!’

Chloe Brackstone School Direct Trainee (20-21)


'Bransgore School Direct has not only provided excellent teacher training but has been fully supportive throughout my year as a trainee teacher. The opportunity to visit different school environments, in addition to the fantastic subject knowledge sessions that we have had from subject specialists has enabled me to put the theory I have learnt into practice.  I can thoroughly recommend Bransgore School Direct as it encompasses a high academic content with extensive practical placements, allowing me to be well prepared for my career as a Primary School Teacher'.

Jo Bunnett School Direct Trainee (19-20)


'I have really enjoyed the challenge of learning to teach on the job, through being mentored by highly skilled teachers and through workshops, learning from professionals that specialize in many areas. As trainees, we have been extremely well supported by the staff at Bransgore, whether that is them responding to emails pretty much immediately with advice or helping to prepare us for interviews and proof reading applications. I cannot fault the experience I have had, I am sad to leave but couldn't feel more prepared for my NQT year.'

 Harriet Crossen School Direct Trainee (19-20)


'I thoroughly enjoyed my teacher training year with South Coast SCITT. The course provided me with a wealth of knowledge and experiences that allowed me to feel well prepared when starting my NQT year. Training to be a teacher can be intensive at times, however the support and guidance on offer from the course tutors was incredible. The tutors themselves shape the course to offer a realistic insight to what teaching is like, preparing trainees with the highest quality teaching and learning opportunities. The strong links with partnership schools means that trainees are provided with well supportive, exceptional school placements and mentors. I am extremely grateful for the opportunities given to me throughout my training year and South Coast SCITT has been an integral part of my teaching career so far'.
